Association for Collaborative Leadership
Summer Institute for Consortium and Collaboration Leaders
Save the Date for the 2018 ACL Summer Institute!
The ACL Summer Institute 2018 will be June 10 – 13 in Atlanta, Georgia, hosted by the Associated Colleges of the South.
Why is an Institute on Collaboration in Higher Education needed?
Consortia and other collaboration-based organizations have had a significant and unique impact on American higher education over the past 50 years. Leaders of these organizations must work hard and be creative to ensure the commitment of institutional and private resources and produce meaningful results. The Institute creates a unique opportunity to learn from these leaders who will share their experiences and “lessons learned” through an interactive, social, and structured approach to the training of participants on the research and practice of effective consortial leadership.
Who will benefit from the Summer Institute?
The Institute is designed for leaders who are interested in understanding the impact of inter-institutional collaborations and cooperation on higher education. While directors and chief executive officers will find the topics and case study approaches of interest, the workshop is also of great value to other senior-level administrators who are preparing for greater leadership roles in their current institutions or who are seeking broader perspectives on collaborative endeavors.
- Make connections with other consortia leaders in order to build a personal network of skilled colleagues;
- Develop professional skills that will enhance their strategic thinking, communications, and leadership capabilities;
- Leave with ideas on how their organization can develop better systems for managing the work of the consortia and identify potential new projects; and
- Benchmark the work of your consortia or collaboration with peer organizations.
